Politics I love it! I love it because it is real and folk can hate it all they want. They can say they don’t want to get involved but the problem with that is you are automatically involved. You see everything political.
Folk you better get involved or be left behind. Being involved can be time consuming and that is why it is my desire to be able to get up in the morning and be on top of what is going on politically. Why? Because folk are making decisions on what affects me daily. So therefore I want to be a part of the decision making by speaking out on issues and holding folk accountable for their actions.
Elections were held across the nation on Tuesday and some folk were knowledgeable of what was happening but many were not. Some folk get mad when folk be at the polling sites passing out literature about candidate telling them who to vote for. But there are more folk who don’t know that do know and they welcome the literature. I have folk that reach out to me asking me do I have literature and to just say can you tell me who I need to vote for because they trust in me. I count that as an honor and a pleasure to have folk who be watching what I do that I don’t even talk to on a regular or have never talked to but they follow me on social media.
There is a lack of political forums held leading up to election time and I plan on trying to change that in the future. You can never have too many forums to educate folk about what is going on around them. Folk need to know whether they like it or not.
Folk just because you don’t like politics the world don’t stop and others are making decisions for you. If you don’t want to get involved directly, get involved indirectly by reaching out to folk that you know are actively engaged. Trust in these folk until they give you a reason not to. Although I am actively engaged I don’t know it all so when there is something I need to know I reach out to my resources. Resources can be better than money sometimes.
Everything political the church, the job and the way you live.
I challenge you to get involved today directly or indirectly because politics is the way of the world. So as long as you are in this world you are affected by politics.
